News Template

Recommended Posts

I love the News calendar template and can think of lots of great ways to use it, but it occurs to me that we could use a New promotion spud too. It would be like the "upcoming events" widget, only instead of displaying x number of future events, it would display x number of past events.

I have a calendar called Social Justice Alerts, which I've formatted as news. The Social Justice Committee chair can post things whenever she wants and the page on our website will update immediately. She'll use today's date when she posts them.

On the front page, I want to have an index of the social justice alerts that will list the "headlines" for the last three things that were posted. It could be called something like "Recent items from Social Justice Alerts." The upcoming events widget won't work because there won't be any future events on the social justice page, only today and things in the past.

Most of our calendar spuds and promotion spuds can be configured to display events in both ascending and descending order. This allows our promotion spuds and calendar views to be used to publish news and announcements in addition to events. Within the settings for the Calendar and Promotion spuds, we now have a descending option along with the ability to specify a start and end date (going backwards)
